st: RE: Macro display format
No. You should try
` : di %9.1f `r(mean)''
See help extended_fcn.
Tip: I would go `: di %2.1f `r(mean)'' even
if you are sure that format is too restrictive.
You're likely to be wrong, as Stata will stretch the space to
avoid damage. However, with %9.1f you are likely to get the ugly
spaces that are a consequence of what you asked
